A sightseeing train “Berumota” where you can enjoy Toyama as a whole

For those who want to travel efficiently and meaningfully in Toyama Prefecture, the sightseeing train “Bell Montaigne et Mer” is recommended. Also known as “Berumonta”.

It is a sightseeing train full of fun where you can taste Toyama’s gourmet and sake while looking at the Tateyama mountain range and the car window where the Sea of Japan spreads.

Every Saturday is the Shirobata Line, which goes south from Takaoka to The Castle End, and on Sundays, the Himi Line, which goes north from Takaoka to the ice viewing area, is operated, so if you incorporate it well according to the schedule, the enjoyment of the trip will expand greatly.
